Asserting that it will bring in a 'new' turn in the country's politics,  Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut also said if elections were to be held in Maharashtra now, similar results will emerge.

"BJP fought the Bihar elections under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. BJP should accept it. Defeat denotes the decline of a leader. If elections are held in Maharashtra now, same results will come as happened in Bihar," he said. Raut stated that elections are fought on leaders and referred to Congress' defeat in Lok Sabha when its president Sonia Gandhi was held responsible.

"Nitish Kumar has emerged as a mahanayak (superhero). His victory was the need in Bihar. He has done good work in Bihar. I greet him on behalf of Shiv Sena. The results in Bihar will bring a new turn to politics of the country," he said.
